Investible is an angel investment platform mentoring entrepreneurial talent to grow and scale their business by connecting angel investors with high potential early stage founders and a global network of likeminded investors. Investible’s mission is to de-risk angel investment on a global scale. Investible has worked with notable companies such as Canva, Booksy, and Invigo.

Also, they have included a strong mix of entrepreneurs, family offices, and corporate executives to all invest $100,000. With more than 50 members and still growing they have created a platform that connects startups with talent, experience, and money. It is as if they have revamp the accessibility of the VC industry.

What Investible does right is that they offer more than just “dumb money”. Peter Colbert, founder of Inamo, a Sydney based startup, who received $1.5 million from Club Investible said “When startups raise money, they can’t just look at the money. They’ve got to look at what [else] the investor is bringing as well… Investible brings IP, support and money – and that’s invaluable as a two-man startup.” (

Some of the competitive advantages of Investible include their data-driven investment process in which it analyzes up to 250 data points across 16 areas such as the founder, business model, traction, and industry. This approach is part of the secret to de-risking. Also, another competitive advantage is that at Investible term sheets are founder-friendly and we come with more founder support than a traditional VC firm. This is a huge draw when attracting smart startups. It is currently unknown how much Investible has invested in startups so far.

This is because the investments generating low rates of return are not appealing. “With a majority of investment from the private sector backing, the venture capital raising has emanated from domestic sources, with a negligible amount emanating from foreign sources” (The United States Studies Centre, 2018). This indicates that foreign venture capital investment is still relatively low globally but is expanding especially with the United States as companies begin to capitalize on global markets (The United States Studies Centre, 2018).
